@MarriedMarriedMarried:  I can understand the “old as f***” attitude. And red velvet cupcakes are the bride’s favorite (before they were a thing), so that’s definitely happening. I think I’ve found a way to do the first look without “peekaboo bride”, but I hope our photographer likes it.

The only things I’m insisting on are red shoes for the bridesmaids because aqua & red is such a cute combo. I’m also doing a “cheese cake” instead of a traditional cake. The dj will play 90’s pop because I love it. I’m not doing any other trend.

Lace strappless wedding dress

Polaroid camera quest book/bridesmaids gifts.

wrote our vows.

chiavari chairs. (the only chairs I like)

Babies breath.

MsGinkgo:  Fiance and i are obsessed with burlap in our daily lives, so we decided to add it to our wedding…i didn’t realize what a trend it was! we are skipping the ceremony details for a simpler ceremony, and having a ring warming instead of a candle/wine/letter/sand/candle portion.

i wanted to skip the tosses, but i’m getting outvoted on that one! no photo booth due to lack of space, live musician (guitar/vocals) instead of a DJ/band, having multiple flavors of homemade pound cakes (made by my aunt, mother, and grandmother) instead of one large cake…one bunting…but it is being used to label a mantle over a fireplace where we will display pictures of loved ones who are no longer with us.

MsGinkgo:  our colors (other than my often-frowned-upon burlap lol) are mint green and lavender with some splashes of coral 😉 purple is my favorite color!!!

No photobooth, no mason jar, no here come the bride sign; however, I love lace, so maybe ask my decorator include that element.  I embrace cupcake tower, so that it can be a pretty display on the cake table and avoid cutting fee

No photobooth, no bouquet/ garter toss, no sand ceremony/ unity candles, our colors are purple and yellow so that’s a bit different too, definitely no mermaid, none of those colored promy vests for the guys, and no corsages.  We are using mason jars though, but use more unusual assortments of flowers.  We are on a budget- they are super budget friendly (plus easy to DIY which we have to do to stay on budget), they fit our venue, and even though they are all over weddingbee and pinterist, I’ve never seen them at a wedding around me.  However, chalkboards, signs, and burlap is a little TOO rustic, cutesty, and unformal for me.  We are having a very formal ceremony at a church and a reception at a family oriented italian restaurant that has a ballroom all made of rustic wood.  Us as a couple are country boy meets city girl, so we are trying to combine elegance with rustic touches with nothing too in your face.
